  • Let’s nationalize Fox News: Imagining a very different media

    Salon ^ | 1/18/14 | Fred Jerome
    Excerpted from "Imagine: Living in a Socialist USA" Imagine a world without the New York Times, Fox News, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and countless other tools used by the 1 percent to rule and fool. In a socialist society run by and for the working people it represents, the mega-monopolies like Walmart, Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, and the corporations that run the tightly controlled “mainstream media” will be a thing of the past. It’s not news that the major US media are run by and for big business, or that the major media companies are themselves big businesses. Twenty years ago,...

    On the first day of Black history month, policy experts analyzed the current economic state of Black Americans during a summit at Howard University. One featured participant said President Obama, “does not deserve a pass anymore” regarding confronting Black issues head on and asked that the President “summon his courage” and “find his voice” on economic inequality in America. **SNIP** There has been discussion on what some refer to as a “cone of silence” over the Obama presidency regarding issues dealing with race and racial disparities in America. The Washington Monthly magazine featured Obama and race on their front cover...

    The Paladium Times ^ | Monday, September 17, 2012 12:45 pm | Associated Press
    Police say more than 100 people have been arrested as Occupy Wall Street protesters march in small groups around Manhattan's financial district to mark the anniversary of the grass-roots movement. Police also removed four protesters in wheelchairs after they blocked a busy street Monday. Loud chanting and the sound of drums filled the air. The demonstrators clogged traffic, and dozens of police officers and vans lined the streets. But the protests lacked the heft of last year's Occupy events. Last year there were thousands of protesters. On Monday morning, there were a few hundred at most.

    TAMPA, Fla. — Republican National Convention protesters sobbed in each other’s arms as their weeklong series of protests came to an abrupt and unremarkable end. As Mitt Romney delivered his remarks at the RNC on Thursday night, marking the end of planned events, demonstrators living in the “Romneyville” protest camp led a final march through the streets of Tampa. Following a fragmented march against the GOP, TheDC’s photo team spoke to several protesters who said they were disappointed by low turnout at protests and the lack of open discussion between protesters and Republican leadership. Referencing the large number of bicycle-based...

    (CNSNews.com) – The Ayatollah Ali Khamenei – the “supreme leader” of Iran – praised America’s “Occupy Wall Street” movement on Thursday, calling it a reflection of people around the world who are “losing their patience” with the dominance of the United States and Israel in the international community. “Everybody has become tired of this faulty international structure,” Khamenei said in his inaugural address to the Non-Aligned Summit, a gathering of 120 nations now taking place in Tehran. “The 99-percent movement of the American people against the centers of wealth and power in America and the widespread protests of the people...
  • Public university offered course credit to campaign for Obama, may have violated election law

    08/29/2012 2:54:49 PM PDT · by oliverdarcy · 7 replies
    A public university in Colorado offered course credit to students to volunteer on President Obama’s reelection campaign, Campus Reform learned on Tuesday. The offer, which has since been retracted, appears to have violated the Colorado Fair Campaign Practices Act, section 1-45-117, which bans the use of public resources for “campaigns involving the nomination, retention, or election of any person to any public office.” Adams State University posted the opportunity late last week on its website stating: “The Obama Campaign Internship (GOVT 279 Presidential Election Internship) will be a 12 week long organizing internship for the Obama Campaign.” No similar offer...

    What are uniformed field representatives of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Community Relations Service (CRS) doing assisting Occupy/anarchist activists outside the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa? Exclusive video captured by Breitbart News during Occupy/anarchist demonstrations outside the RNC Tuesday shows CRS field representatives, wearing DOJ logo polo shirts and hats, conversing with Occupy protesters. In one case, a CRS representative and protester are seen to high-five each other. CRS representatives are also seen relaying specific instructions to the activists about the location of prearranged buses that were apparently taking them to their next scheduled demonstration.

    What could possibly go wrong? Sadly, a number of things. With hardly any donations coming in, there is no money to feed people camped there and not enough tents to keep its estimated 180 occupants shielded from the blazing sun or sudden afternoon thunderstorms, said the Rev. Bruce Wright, one of the tent city’s founders. “We need about $3,000 to get it going,” said Wright, a member of the Poor People’s Economic Rights campaign. “What we have is a trickle.” And what of the thousands of protesters? There are an estimated 180 people there and many of them are either...

    Let’s examine some of the actions (or non-actions) President Barack Hussein “kill list” Obama has taken lately to defend Islam. Islamic Organizations: A majority of Islam organizations in America have direct and/or indirect links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Organizations such as the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the most widely publicized one, fall into this category. For example, this source explains the CAIR-Hamas linkage. This sourceconfirms CAIR as a terrorist organization. The US government has linked CAIR to...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 20 August 2012 | Editorial
    The Left: An Occupy organizer admitted over the weekend that the goal of his protest group was to "overthrow the capitalist system and build communism." So the cat's out of the bag again on this bunch. Where is the outrage? The true agenda of the Occupy movement has been revealed — it's a totalitarian one. Billing itself as a spontaneous people's revolution and embraced by the media and Democrat political establishment, Occupy is really a destructive band of thugs whose goal is the violent demise of democracy. Speaking at a "People's Assembly" in Washington, former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689...

    The California Nurses Association, which antagonized Republican Meg Whitman with its relentless "Queen Meg" parody during the 2010 gubernatorial campaign, is back for a second act - this time poking fun at wealthy people opposing Gov. Jerry Brown's November ballot initiative to raise taxes. The influential union, in a campaign to paint tax opponents as "bungling billionaires," will stage a skit on Tuesday at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. The union promised reporters a "colorful event," with visuals including life rings and a model yacht.

    Tearing a page out of the Occupy Wall Street playbook, concerned Grand Traverse County residents are employing a similar strategy this weekend. The residents initiated “Occupy the Boardman” at the Brown Bridge Dam on Friday, Aug. 3, in order to raise awareness of the environmental and ecological damage initiated by the drawdown of impounded water between three of the Boardman River dams. In addition, OTB is protesting the proposed removal of the dams, which they assert would release trapped toxic sediments from the impoundments into the Grand Traverse County watershed; further destroy property values of landowners who have owned homes...

    I thought I would post a few thoughts. This image is now running around out there, without attributing the work done here at RFNJ: I have not made any conclusions here [at RFNJ] that James E. Holmes belonged to any particular occupy group. It seems that only here at RFNJ can you see the truthful source of this image. For any OWS participants who come here, I will only say that I find admitting truth to be a liberating experience. I draw an inference from the YouTube upload of this carefully edited video that it was NOT produced by the...

    Private Detective Bill Warner is reporting at his site that the Aurora, CO theatre mass murderer James E. Holmes was apparently a member of the Occupy movement’s “elite” militant and violent Black Bloc unit. There is also a photo on the site showing Holmes being arrested by what appear to be San Diego police. We already know that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and a number of other Democrat lawmakers have praised the Occupy “movement” and Obama-mentor and boss George Soros has heavily financed it. Now, with the Black Bloc Uber-violent segment and its apparent hit-man James Holmes beginning to look,...

    Banks are slowing foreclosure rates yet again, and it isn’t because they are out of borrowers to foreclose on. With the settlement earlier this year, banks began to clear out their existing REO inventory, and they slowed foreclosures in the Southwest in order to modify mortgages to meet their requirements under the settlement (note the uptick in cancellations last month). Ideally, the banks would like to modify loans to keep borrowers in place and complete short sales for those who want to leave. They don’t want to resolve there legacy toxic loans by foreclosure. Unfortunately, borrowers are not cooperating....
